Buttermilk Biscuits

2 cups self-rising flour

2 teaspoons sugar

1/2 cup vegetable shortening

2/3 cup buttermilk

Preheat the oven to 450ºF.

In a bowl, combine the flour and sugar. Using two knives, cut in the

shortening until it is thoroughly combined. You may also use a food

processor. Add the buttermilk all at onces and stir until it and the

flour are mixed. The dough will be very moist.

Use a floured board and floured fingertips, pat out the dough to a

1/2-inch thickness. Cut the dough into 12 biscuits with a sharp knife,

dipping th eknife in flour after each use to keep it from sticking.

Transfer the biscuits with a floured metal spatula to an ungreased baking

sheet and bake for 10 to 12 minutes, until the tops are lightly browned.

Serve warm.
